The five World War II documents in this Third Reich grouping relate to Oberleutnant Otto Führer of Dienststelle Feldpost Nr. 15974 (Kompanie Bau-Pionier-Bataillon 153 - an engineer outfit). From the material in this document lot we learned he served on the East Front and West Front. The documents are:
1) Kleiner Wehrmacht Fahrschein, a two-sided 4-1/8 x 5-7/8 inch military train ticket issued to Oberleutnant Otto Führer on 1 November 1943 for a military transfer from Nikopol on the bank of the Dnieper River in the Soviet Union to Wien, the second largest city in Adolf Hitler's Greater Germany. It was issued and signed by the Battalion Commander of Dienststelle Feldpost Nr. 24317 (Stab Bau-Pionier-Bataillon 153).
2) Sonderausweis, a special two-sided 5-¼ x 8-¼ inch ID with orders for a transfer (shown at the top of this USMBOOKS web page) dated 4 November 1943, issued by Dienststelle Feldpost Nr. 24317 (Stab Bau-Pionier-Bataillon 153). The reason for this permit was Otto Führer's transition to Panzerarmee-Oberkommando 1 of the IIa/Armee-Pionier-Führer (II), orders he had received on 2 November 1943.
The permit was issued after Oberleutnant Führer had been examined by a doctor who declared he was free of infectious diseases or venereal disease, clearly noted on the upper right hand corner of the front side of the Sonderausweis!
A red stamp on the back shows Otto Führer reported at a military post in Wien (Vienna) on 16 November 1943.
3) Deutsche Reichspost Telegramm, a 5-¾ x 8-¼ inch telegram (shown directly below) Otto Führer sent from Krakau on 11 November 1943 telling a Heinrich Kobfer in Vienna he would arrive at 9 PM on Thursday but that he did not need to be picked up. So from this telegram we know Oberleutnant Führer traveled from Nikopol to Vienna via Krakau.
4) Kleiner Wehrmacht Fahrschein, issued on 21 May 1944 to Oberleutnant Otto Führer after his release from a Wehrmacht military hospital in Fontainebleau, France (liberated 3 months later by US Forces!). It was issued by a doctor of Dienststelle Feldpost Nr. 15496 (Gruppen-Chefarzt 3/I Kriegslazarett-Abteilung 528 R) and the travel destination was Engerau (near Bratislava, now in Slovakia). From a rubber stamp on the ticket we can see he left Paris the evening of 23 May and traveled via Frankfurt.
5) Wehrmacht-Briefstelle XVII Wien sent a notice to Mrs. Amalia Führer of Vienna on 4 March 1944 (shown directly above). It was in response to a request made by her on 1 February 1944 regarding the whereabouts of a Dutch volunteer, Albertus Johannes Kilsdonk. According to information received from Dienststelle Feldpost Nr. L51945 of Brussels, Kilsdonk returned to Amsterdam after he fulfilled his military service on 28 April 1943. It includes his new address.
